Aidiladha is also commonly known as Hari Raya Korban or Hari Raya Haji in Malaysia. Celebrated about two months after Hari Raya Aidilfitri, on the 10th day of Zulhijjah, the 12th (last) month of the Muslim calendar, it marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage period (about two weeks).

The first Muslim Hajj after the surrender of Mecca to the Muslims in 630 was led not by Muhammad but by his close follower Abu Bakr, later (632-4) to be the first caliph of Islam. They went to Mecca, Mina and Arafat, the recognized Hajj sites.

It was the “Farewell Pilgrimage’ of March 632, the year of the Prophet’s death, that established the pattern of the Muslim Hajj as it is practised down to the present day. It was both the first and the last Hajj he led. The compilers od collections of Hadith repeatedly refer to Muhammad’s pronouncements on such complex matters as the nature of ihram dress and the rituals to be performed at the different times of the Hajj.

This year (2012) will be the 1,382 Hajj since the first muslim Hajj in the year 630.
